You can also grab Ubuntu DVDs. :-) But, there are some things we just can't

I think it *is* challenging to learn a new set of best practices when moving
from Red Hat (and related distros) to Debian (and related distros). But from
my experience in systems administration for business and telecommunications,
well worth it.
